Episode #74 of +Spoilerpiece Theatre is live with Dave back from sick leave! First up is Ron Howard's IN THE HEART OF THE SEA staring the Greater Hemsworth (Chris). I hated it, Kris found himself enjoying it, while all three of us try (and fail) to steer clear of "seaman" jokes. Next up is the 2015 Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) Awards. Dave, Kris, and I share our Top 10 lists and delve into some of the categories which had the least consensus, such as Best Foreign Film and Best Documentary. Highlights include PEACE OFFICER, FINDERS KEEPERS, STRAY DOG, and JAFAR PANAHI’S TAXI. Check it out! http://wp.me/p4PJKq-8C
In Episode 74 of Spoilerpiece Theatre, we review IN THE HEART OF THE SEA and talk about BOFCA's 2015 awards.

Make sure not to miss Episode 68 of +Spoilerpiece Theatre! I talk about BURNT, a predictable picture where there are gratuitous montages of mundane things. Then +Kristofer Jenson discusses OUR BRAND IS CRISIS, a political film that’s reminiscent of PCU, but without George Clinton. And finally, I saw +Dave Riedel's favorite movie, HIDING OUT, so the two of us give it the full Spoilerpiece treatment. http://wp.me/p4PJKq-7I
Following a brief Eddy mix up, the guys review movies new to old. First up is Evan with BURNT, a Bradley Cooper film about disgraced chef who does not pee in soup. It’s a super predictable picture ...

Bob Chipman aka The Movie Bob fills in for Dave this week, who is unforunately absent due to dental work. At least it's another great week at the movies though. In this episode, find out why we hope THE MARTIAN inspires a million kids to do space camp, why we almost peed their pants during THE WALK, and why we think that TIME OUT OF MIND makes strong statement about homelessness. http://wp.me/p4PJKq-7k

In this week's episode of +Spoilerpiece Theatre, +Dave Riedel offers his thoughts on GRANDMA and goes off on Joe Swanberg again before me and +Kristofer Jenson discuss Johnny Depp in BLACK MASS. We end up talking about other better gangster movies before Dave closes with his take on the documentary THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION. Check it out and take our quick survey too! http://wp.me/p4PJKq-76
Dave is back this week to offer his take on GRANDMA, which echoes Sean's sentiments about the film. Then he goes back to hating on Joe Swanberg for DIGGING FOR FIRE and derides Mumblecore movies in...

On this week's episode of +Spoilerpiece Theatre we tackle a ton of movies. +Dave Riedel finally gets to share his thoughts on THE TRIBE! Then me and +Kristofer Jenson cover AMERICAN ULTRA. Other reviews include THE GIFT, PEOPLE PLACES THINGS, and CALL ME LUCKY.
Movies like woah on this week’s Spoilerpiece. First, Evan teases the book about ‘80s films that he’s been working on with his friend Bryan Krull, prompting a deeper conversation on ‘80s movies. The...

Finally got around to watching THE TRIBE, so I shared my thoughts about how disturbing it is with +Kristofer Jenson and +Dave Riedel on this week's +Spoilerpiece Theatre. Then to lighten the mood, we then talked PIXELS, SOUTHPAW, and INFINITELY POLAR BEAR.
This week Dave tells everyone more about why he loves HIDING OUT with John Cryer and poses an interesting theory about Jim Carrey before Kris shares that he was wearing flannel before it was cool. ...

Last week we got caught up in +Boston Online Film Critics awards excitement, so we didn't have a chance to share our latest episode. Thankfully you still have a couple of days to listen before our new one, so check out our chat with special guest Sean Burns about the bonkers film YOUTH, the Spike Lee-helmed CHI-RAQ, the tearjerker ROOM, and the Tom Hardy vehicle LEGEND. http://wp.me/p4PJKq-8b
In Episode 73 of Spoilerpiece Theatre, we talk about YOUTH, CHI-RAQ, LEGEND, and ROOM.

The new episode of +Spoilerpiece Theatre is live! This week, I cover the single-take German heist drama VICTORIA, which takes too long get going, gets effectively tense in a promising second act, only to overstay its welcome. +Dave Riedel  jumps in to describe Cary Fukunaga’s heavy and horrifying — but effective — BEASTS OF NO NATION. +Kristofer Jenson then dissects THE LAST WITCH HUNTER’s magical dismemberment and why he loves Vin Diesel so much. We close out the show with a new segment, “Riedel’s Recaps,” where Dave offers counterpoints to films Kris and I discussed on his weeks off. Check it out!
The guys have something to say about BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II this week, but it’s not what you’d expect. Once they get that out of their system, Evan covers VICTORIA, which gets Dave speaking Ger...

It's a historic week at Spoilerpiece. +Dave Riedel actually enjoyed both of his movies! Hear this thoughts on BLIND and THE SECOND MOTHER, as well as +Kristofer Jenson and my reviews of THE INTERN, STONEWALL, and SICARIO all in this week's episode. It's a good week for movies. http://wp.me/p4PJKq-7f
Dave makes a historic Spoilerpiece proclamation! But first Evan and Kris tease their coverage of THE MARTIAN by telling Dave about the book. It’s a busy day on the show with lots of ground to cover...

Special guest Sean Burns joins me and +Kristofer Jenson for this week's episode. I try to convince him not to see THE VISIT, while Kris does the opposite. Then Sean spoilerpieces GRANDMA and 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN. Tangents this week include Kris's role in a local horror film, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda at Sundance, whether Hayden Christensen can act, and excitement for the new STAR WARS. http://goo.gl/WgMZKm
Sean Burns joins Evan and Kris this week, vowing to up the episode’s profanity quotient since he’s filling for Dave. But Evan does a pretty good job of that himself, cursing out M. Night Shyamalan’...

On this week's +Spoilerpiece Theatre​,  +Kristofer Jenson, +Dave Riedel and me take on THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (eh), PHOENIX (intriguing), and STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON (awesome). Drop by for tangents about t-shirts we wish we could own and Baby Henry's new raincoat. http://goo.gl/MkM3FY
Dave is back again on this week’s Spoilerpiece (which makes two weeks in a row)! The fellas talk about silly t-shirts they wish they could own, including one in particular that Kris wanted as a kid...
